‘Sharia law opponents are bigots’: Muslim psychologist calls for Australia to introduce special laws for followers of Islam

‘Sharia law opponents are bigots’: Muslim psychologist calls for Australia to introduce special laws for followers of Islam, by Stephen Johnson.

A prominent Muslim psychologist with a practice in Sydney’s west says opponents of Sharia law are bigots.

Hanan Dover has told her 10,898 Facebook followers Australia needed to allow special laws for Muslims.

‘Religious groups can engage the laws and negotiate change in Australia whatever your religious schtick,’ she said.

‘But, only one of those religious laws creates political and media hysteria because it suits political fear-mongering and that’s pretty obvious – Islam.’

Ms Dover compared the idea of allowing Islamic law for Muslims with Aboriginal customary laws in the criminal justice system.

‘The fact that there is only one single law for Australians is BS,’ she said.

A real virtue signaler:

In 2015, Ms Dover told a conference that young Muslim men charged with terrorism had been treated unfairly, describing it as how ‘young teenagers act out’.

In 2002, she likened homosexuals to ‘thieves, murderers, liars, hypocrites, criminals’ at a forum at the University of Western Sydney, but last year voiced support for gay marriage and distanced herself from those remarks made 15 years ago.

Bill Shorten, the ALP leader, in the past week has been calling forone tax system” for all, as he proposes changes to the tax system (he is focusing on trusts).

This ought to be interesting. The left is simultaneously campaigning on the theme of non-discrimination and one tax system for all, while encouraging Muslim voters to push for a separatist legal system.  Logic and consistency are no barriers to a determined virtue signaler.
